A 65-year-old gogo in Westenburg, Limpopo, finally has a new house two years after a fire gutted down her home.

Multi-Spectrum Property teamed up with other private companies and the City of Polokwane to build gogo Christina Adams an eight-room house, Daily Sun reports.

For two years, Adams had to share a dilapidated 2-room shack with 14 other members of her family, Briefly.co.za gathered.

Polokwane's Executive Mayor; Thembi Nkadimeng, and the Good Samaritans officially handed over the house to Adams and her family last week.

Nkadimeng said well-wishers decided to help the family after seeing the degrading conditions in which they lived, especially during the winter.

A delighted gogo Adams thanked the City and the well-wishers profusely, adding that God brought them into their lives:

Without the Lord we wouldn’t have this house. I prayed every day to ensure that my family got a proper house. It was heartbreaking to see my children suffering.
We thank everyone who helped to build this beautiful house for us. Now we will live in dignity.
